What we’re about

The Garden State Java User Group, Inc. (formerly the ACGNJ Java Users Group), in continuous operation since February 2001, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides a forum to promote the use of Java platforms, APIs, and language. We strive to facilitate interactive discussions and exchange of ideas relating to the application of Java.

Topics will primarily focus on JVM technologies such as Java EE, Jakarta EE, MicroProfile, Spring, Groovy and Kotlin. Topics on non-JVM technologies such as Meteor, AngularJS, and Rust may occasionally be presented.

We are proud members of the MicroProfile Working Group and the Jakarta EE Ambassadors and have adopted the Jakarta NoSQL specification.

All meetings are generally held on the second Tuesday of the month, but may change due to speaker availability. In-person meetings are usually held at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey. On-line meetings are held via our YouTube channel.
